The Reds are in semifinals of the Champions League after a decade. The side has emerged as one of the strongest force this season and established Premier League’s pride once again in the battle of Europe. Liverpool could have been the champions of Premier League but what dragged them behind through the time is their defensive play work. Liverpool conceded the most goals among the teams belong from the top four in the point table. Liverpool is now placed at number three with 70 points, where Manchester United are just one point ahead of them being in second position.

Though the league is already over as Manchester City have already won the league, but competition is there yo finish in top four and getting the tickets of Champions League for the next season.

 

The preparations for the next season have already begun and team managements are on their work to pick the best option for them. Liverpool German manager Jurgen Klopp already declared his intention to spend big to challenge Manchester City for the title in 2019. After City clinched the title when West Brom’s shock 1-0 win at Manchester United, they got the most polarities among the bookies to win the title next year again, with Liverpool in second place. Football pundit Paul Merson believes Liverpool were the closest team to Pep Guardiola’s side offering any challenge. United and Tottenham both top four teams were beaten by City and helped them to maintain the bridge.

 

He said that City are far better over a consistent time and also added that Liverpool have got the potential if they go out and spend reasonably big in the summer, then they might have a chance, but one should look at Tottenham.

According to Merson, if he he was a Tottenham player, he would have looked at that and thought: ‘wow, we’re a million miles away.’

He was no humble to Manchester United and said that Man City next season will take all the beating again.

Losing three on the trot and going out the Champions League and lost to Manchester United was a great blow for the Champions. It was fascinated that then going and playing Tottenham and just blow them away like that. It was a ‘fizzling out’ experience for him. Merson was so in the the Premier League leaders as he said that We have short memories in football, and there one can just remember how great they (City) have been this season.

 

The forward trio of Liverpool have been in their career best throughout the season. The most scored by any forward combination in Europe this season, where Mohamed Salah was individual best. People are already in a buzz that this Egyptian magician should get the Ballon d’or this season, but even Salah himself knows that he must win Champions League at least for that. The Egypt international has scored 40 goals for his side in this season and giants like Real Madrid, PSG, Barcelona and Manchester United are after him. Though Salah himself expressed his loyalty to the club that he isn’t going anywhere without a Premier League in his bag, but who knows, this world is crazy and Football is not what we expect.
